Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst S (2009) review
Drive like that and you notice the relaxed nature of the big Holden. And who am I to complain about that? These things are all well and good in a straight line, but on twisty roads i reckon a Focus RS would blow it away. Especially since it has the noisiest supercharger this side of an vsr8 Bentley Blower. And the running costs will be eye-wateringly high in tax and fuel.

The most powerful car ever to wear a Vauxhall badge. More info on Vauxhall VXR8. What it lacks is polish. Should I bathust one?
Stick it in fourth and waft around country lanes and town roads alike. And the Bathurst positively excels at bumbling along in everyday mode.
Spring and damper settings are fettled, 20in alloys fitted and beefy six-pot front, four-pot rear brakes added. The compressor spools up with an incredible din at even bathyrst throttle openings.
Even not at full chat, the Bathurst reveals its naughty side.

Helping to put the power onto the road are stiffened, height adjustable springs, individually adjustable coil-over dampers, six-pot callipers at the front, and four-pot callipers at the rear.

The optional bi-modal exhaust system, even on baturst quieter ‘street’ setting, woofles on the over-run, and it sounds for all the world like the car is being pushed along on the edge of a thunderstorm.
I’m sure there is already a bolt on supercharger kit for this engine.
